Medicaid Waiver Means Coverage For Up To 30,000

HMA is proud to have helped The MetroHealth System secure a Medicaid Section 1115 waiver that will ensure more Ohio residents get the medical care they need.

The new program, MetroHealth Care Plus, offers free health care coverage for people with low incomes who do not qualify for Medicaid and have no insurance. It’s expected the program will provide a medical home and health coverage for up to 30,000 uninsured residents of Ohio’s Cuyahoga County.

The waiver relies on the early expansion authority granted under the Affordable Care Act. HMA has numerous colleagues who are experts in Medicaid 1115 waivers and other innovative solutions to transform delivery systems and expand coverage, including former officials with CMS and the OMB.
